While provincial health orders barring indoor dining last until May 25, a week past the planned opening date, Fernando’s is expected to make use of the city’s expanded patio program to expand its outdoor dining until the order expires.

Fernando’s closed its doors back in October 2020, citing the economic turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason.

“We will be excited to welcome you back in the spring, with new plans for outdoor seating and live music with some of Canada’s foremost leading artists, and a return to the vibrant atmosphere both customers and musicians have grown to love,” Fernando’s wrote in an October Facebook post.
